As discussed during last deck, I would like to see more Atlantic Wall Installations for KM - particularly the named ones. Todt and others had interesting features that made them unique. I know that France also could have some form of installation - I forget what ships dueled with it, but I want to say Massachusetts... Anything with Malta? Italy?
The FAS is the only one I see used so would an enlarged version of that work?
Otherwise the Atlantic wall ability on the new cards seems set up for another type. Although I wouldn't have been inclined towards another but for that ability, which seems a potential set up for that.
Or I'd be happy without an installation altogether, as like I say I only see the one often used and the claim for spots is as high as ever with neutrals etc. getting an increase.
HMS Agamemnon (Minelayer), HMS Ladybird (Improved 6" gunboat), HMS Li Wo (Unique VC action), HMS Medway (Described as probably the most important ship in the med when sunk), HMS Springbank (CAM ship), HMS Fidelity.
UK still has no fleet support in terms of fleet oilers or sub tender ships like other big nations and no Hurricat! armed type.
"We went out, got our arses kicked, then came back again"
I will not duplicate the good suggestions above but add these
I would prefer to see auxiliary ships over installations as there are so many ships that could be done in this category. The convoy game needs something and I do not know what exactly it is to revise it but some diversity in pieces might mix things up or making the convoy participants more “active’ in some way with SAs.
However if an installation was done my choice would be a radar installation that could be used for Atlantic or Pearl Harbour set ups.
Canada: SS Beaverford with some type of evades or hard to hit SA would be a nice axillary paring for Jervis Bay and the story of convoy HX-84.
Canada: HMCS Lady Nelson - Hospital ship would be a good option as only one of two “Lady Ships” to survive the war and she survived a torpedoing by U161.
Canada: the oil tanker Catabolite she was captured by the German auxiliary cruiser Kormoran and was subsequently turned into a German tanker and later converted to blockade runner "Sudetenland".
USA: USS Bunch (DE-694) as APD-79 as a high speed transport as the convey game needs something and maybe it is an auxiliary with better speed.
Germany; could get the Kulmerland a supply ship used to supply German raiders which could boost auxiliaries and raiders.
British: HMS Palomares which was an Anti-aircraft Artillery ship and eventually a Fighter Direction Ship or to provide a seagoing anti-aircraft auxiliary with radar as an SA.
